Kristi Siedow-Thompson

I am a creative & energetic fashion designer living New York City.
I have a background in graphic design and illustration.


Hi I'm Kristi.

I am a fashion designer and costumer in the greater New York City area. I graduated summa cum laude from the Fashion Institute of Technology in May 2017 with an associate's degree in fashion design. I have been sewing all my life, but recently found that my passion for creating amazing silhouettes and structured garments was big enough to pursue a career in fashion exclusively. I specialize in laser cut details and fashion for performers.

I have a unique background; for 10 years I worked as a graphic designer and creative director. I have experience in all regions of graphic design, including print, web, mobile, as well as social media, marketing, user experience, and copywriting. 

I enjoy working on a variety of diverse projects and am an excellent project manager.

[Kristi] is one of the most passionate people I have ever worked with, giving it her all on every project and design she worked on. She is always positive and willing to put in the extra effort to make sure something is done well and meets or exceeds expectations. She takes feedback extremely well, better than most, if not all, of the other designers I have worked with.

Here's what people are saying about my work:

"Kristi is hands-down the most creative person I know. She has the ability to think outside the box [to develop] an original idea into a masterpiece before deadline and with what appears to be no effort at all."

"She is a triple communications threat: she has phenomenal graphic design skills, unsurpassed creativity, and a great command of social media marketing."

"[Kristi] has a unique ability to conceptualize user experience and incorporate design elements that are both eye-catching and functional."

 

"She's hardworking, organized, talented, creative, and when you add her wonderful personality to the list, it's the perfect combination for a spectacular employee."

"Kristi is that rarest of marketing professionals who commands both knowledge of the business side of marketing as well as the technical skills needed to create stunning materials."

"If I had the chance, I would hire Kristi again to be a lead designer or a creative director on any web, mobile, print, advertising, photography or creative project."
